Reputation: The 16th arr. is Paris version of New York’s Upper East Side or London’s Kensington. This is where you’ll find the most prestigious residential areas, impressive boulevards and elegant Parisians. The arrondissement is bordered by the enormous Bois de Boulogne park to the west, a great place for all things sport and summer picnics. A big draw in the 16th is the Palais de Chaillot and Trocadéro from where you have a great view of the Eiffel Tower. The Palais de Chaillot is also home to several museums and a theater. The Musée Guimet, a museum with a collection of Asian art and closeby you’ll find our favourite – Palais de Tokyo, which hosts modern art exhibitions, several restaurants and one of Paris best bars that only keeps open during summer. The 16th is also the place where Roland Garros – the French Open tennis takes place every spring.
